    Focus Confirm adaptors for Oly E series

    Anybody tried any of these out... was surfing ebay looking at Leica R lenses, and noticed adaptors with Focus confirm chips at around 50 dollars.

    no idea what other lens types these are available for or whether they really work that well

    any opinions welcome

    Hi Kevin, I fitted a KatzEye focusing screen to my E-400, and the ME-1 magnifying eyepiece would help further... but I wouldn't trust these dandelion chips... Last time I looked, they were superglued into an adapter & liable to drop off with use.

    In the end, if you're serious about using your legacy lenses then I'd have to recommed the G1 as the most practical solution.

    Kind Regards

    Brian

    brian - thanks for that - kinda suspected it was a kludgy solution.... but would be interested to hear back on some real world experiences of them

    May look into the katzeye solution... or maybe just shoot at f8 and hope for the best :-)

    G1 still intrigues... but will probably wait for what ever oly does....and then steal my other halfs leica lenses :-)

    cheers from a cold and frosty Paris
